Body scrubs play an important part in any skincare routine and I’m always on the lookout for new ones to try.
I absolutely love Sanctuary Spa so thought I’d give Being a try to see if the sister brand is just as good.
There isn’t much of a scent range to choose from for this brand although they do have a wide range of products such as mask, butters and bath bombs etc…
For £9 you get 250g of the body scrub, mine is Salted Caramel & Macadamia which I have to admit is an interesting choice of scent.
It’s not overpowering with salted caramel definitely coming out on top but I do prefer fruity scents or the classic Sanctuary Spa scent.
The scrub itself had a waxy texture and is that fine you can barely feel it scrub. It did leave my skin feeling smooth but I prefer a deeper scrub which you can feel working.
For £9 I would say it’s more on the pricey side as there are better scrubs on the market you can for a similar price or cheaper.
The brand is cruelty free and a lot of the products are Vegan which I believe this one is.
Looking for an exfoliator that’s all natural, cruelty free and suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians?
It may sound impossible but look no further, the Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Oatmeal Exfoliator delivers all of that for £2.99. It’s packed with multivitamins A, B, E, F & H to replenish dry skin and protect it from premature ageing and environmental damage.
This scrub like the name suggests is gentle on the skin and doesn’t contain micro-beads like some of the leading brands on the market. My skin type is combination and I find that this exfoliator mattifies my skin without drying it out, it also leaves my face feeling clean, refreshed and smooth to the touch.
A little of this scrub goes a long way meaning the 100ml tube will last a while!
Whilst it may not smell the best due to containing oats and chestnuts and it does leave a slight mess in the sink, I would recommend it to anybody who is after a gentle scrub. With most scrubs you can’t really use them more than once a week due to the harshness of the micro-beads but with this one you can use it more often.
This is just one of many products in the Vitamin E range and is aimed at consumers with normal-dry skin.
